Absolutely fantastic tent, there are 7 of us, 2 adults and 5 children aged 3-17 years old. And it is perfect size for us all to have loads of room to move freely, it's warm and comfortable. The bedroom sizes are ample. We used the front porch as a kitchen area and it is perfect. I would highly recommend this tent to friends and family, or anyone else that should ask my review. I look forward to looking at awnings to add on to our space.

We camped for the first time, and first pitch in Cornwall, amongst 30-40mph gusts, rain light and heavy. We stayed dry, draft free, and enjoyed seeing the rain bounce off our tent. We camped with 4 kids and 2 adults and found the tent to be spacious enough for our kids to play games in the main room whilst us adults sat watching the rain through the lovely tinted windows. It took us 60 minutes to pitch it, excluding guy ropes which took another hour, using the Outwell's technique, but it was our first time and I'm sure we'll get faster. It took 45 minutes to pull down. It however took another 120 minutes to put all our stuff in it, yes it's that big. The tinted windows provided a limited form of privacy with the windows flaps open, as long as you didn't through a light on in the front it was nearly opaque from outside. With the side flaps open, the tent cooled quickly when hot, with them closed it stayed warm.

Now to the bad.

By the end of our 2 weeks camping, we had one rear toggle on the left hand inner bedroom break, but without any real detriment to the tent's performance, or comfort. The taped seems on the tent were not neat around the windows in one place. Splaying the panoramic front end out couldn't be done in a tight manner, which resulted on one occasion of a small puddle of water entering the tent front due to a pitching error, which when corrected prevented any more incoming of water under the front. In addition one of the front splays tore when we pulled the tent peg out.

With that said, its a great tent, and would recommend it to anyone. Looking forward to going camping again in our tent.

I shall from now on insist that this Tent be known as the Vermonster.

Have Just came back from Cornwall after wind rain and sunshine!

This year was my first camping holiday as a family for 8 years due to the fact that when I convinced my wife all those years ago how great camping was it rained none stop!

So after a bit of convincing this year was my last chance saloon!

After reviewing all tents that would give me space and quality I went for the Vermont XLP.

I ordered the tent on Monday and received it by Thursday leaving for hols on Saturday so no time to trial run set up.

Ok so this is how it goes never set up before took me and a friend 45 mins all poles the same easy!

Quality as you would expect from Outwell, we had wind rain and sunshine all in one week and had no problems what's so ever!

Space is great with 2 adults and 2 Children, we also bought the carpet which I would say is a must, it adds a bit of comfort.

To top it all the wife had a great time and is looking forward to next year! Can you believe it!

One thing only could do with lantern hook in front section that is all I found as an issue

(was it worth mentioning)

If you want a tent then this is it unless you have a couple of grand to throw about!

Manufacturer's Description

The largest of our Premium Collection tents, the Vermont XLP sleeps up to seven in three bedrooms. Not only spacious, but with great headroom too, the Vermont will appeal to taller campers. And it is also big on features like drying rails and the new inner front and Night Sky Ceiling. There’s even a walk-in wardrobe! The panorama room really does open the front of the tent by increasing space, light and all-round views, a feeling heightened by the huge tinted windows backed by zip-up curtains. The front can be partially opened or fully rolled back to catch the sun. Packed full of Outwell innovation, the Vermont XLP is made from our own Outtex® 5000 fabric with pre-attached luminous guylines. Pitching is made even simpler by our Outwell Easy Pegging System that works with the Outwell Wind Stabilizer System to enhance stability in up to Force 10 gales.

Recommendation: A huge tent that sleeps up to seven in luxury, with the option to add an awning.
